The Federal Executive Council on Wednesday approved two contracts totaling N283.255bn ($18.12 million) to purchase boats and scanners for the Nigeria Customs Service.

The Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, disclosed this to State House correspondents at the end of a virtual meeting of the council presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Ahmed said the two contracts were approved for the Nigeria Customs Service.

She said the first approval was for the revision of a contract that was previously approved by the council in 2018 for the supply and installation of three mobile cargo scanners that would be placed in Onne, Port Harcourt and Tin Can Ports.

Ahmed said, “This contract is awarded to a company that is named Messrs Airwave Limited and the contract is in the sum of $18.12m of the foreign component. There is also a local component of N3.26bn inclusive of five percent VAT.
